Want to see a quick tour of our apartment?

 
Of course you do, ya little stalker!

I find homes absolutely fascinating. I wish I could sneak a peek into everyone’s homes. It’s such an intimate and personal space, and often the only place you can truly be yourself. And I love to see how people organize and decorate and lay out their space.

I plan on doing a more detailed “Home Tour” sometime in the future, but we snapped some photos randomly when our apartment was semi-clean.

Want a peek?

We live in a glamorous (or not) 4th floor walk up with three bedrooms and one bath. Yes, 3 bedrooms in NYC! We are spoiled I know, but take into account no dishwasher, no laundry, and floor flights of stairs! Our rent is extremely affordable (the price of a cheap 2 bedroom!) We are very grateful we found this place, and there was definitely Divine intervention involved, but that’s a story for another day!

I like to say crusty but others might say our apartment “has character.” In other words, it’s old. It’s a pre-war building with the fifteen-coats-of-paint-on-the-walls to match!

Let’s start in the kitchen.

08

We have a galley kitchen, a more spacious place than most for NYC so we feel very lucky! Plus a full-sized fridge.

09

Our kitchen window looks out on the courtyard.

10

Not tons of storage but we make it work. I LOVE my little kitchen!

11

This is what we call the “Front Room.” It’s the first off the hallway and has a door from the hall as well as a door that connects it to the kitchen. We use it as an office and dining space. SO cluttered in this picture! This room is in need of a major organizational overhaul. We’d love to get some better storage for all of BJ’s photo equipment.

07

The middle room is a dumping ground/guest room. This is where we keep all the cat stuff. It also houses my piano and music, our exercise bike, BJ’s real bike, and BJ’s closet.

This photo is looking into our living room from the hallway.

05

I usually use that table as my desk. I like to be in the center of the action when I do my work.

06

This is from our living room looking into our hallway. At the end of the hall is our front door. The entry you see on the right leads to our bathroom and bedroom.

03

A true, teeny New York bathroom.

And finally, our bedroom.

Thanks for taking the tour! Do you think it’d be fun to do an even more in depth one in the future? What do you think?

      Thank you! I’ve tried to add our flair to it!

  • Sarah Overdier

    Beautiful! Thanks on behalf of all of us stalkers ;) My first thought is how did you get all that furniture up 4 flights????

    • http://andreaenright.net/ Andrea Enright

      We inherited a lot of furniture from the previous tenants (the red sofa, exercise bike, assorted shelves and chairs). As for everything else, they were hauled by 4 buff, burly professional movers! It was A LOT. We tipped them well!

    Andrea dear! I really enjoyed the trip in your home! I’m sorry I didn’t understand your perfect English (naturally it is my fault!), but most of it I did. I think many Hungarian couple would be happy to have them such a nice flat as yours! Be happy and healthy with it for a long-long life! I love you, and pray for you every day!

      Love you Aunt Gizi! We’d love for you to visit one day! Or at least, we must come visit you again! So glad we will get to see you and Agi at Mikayla’s wedding in January!

        I’m also happy we will see you in January! I think this trip to US will be the last one in my life. I’m afraid a little bit of the travelling… but I’m very excited of the nice occasion to see my loved ones! I love you both, praying for you and BJ’s recovery!
